Winter Guide to NYC
It's no big secret that the last few months of Winter in NYC can be rough. Once the holidays are over, I don't know about you, but I'm down-right depressed. The stores are filled with Spring clothes but the ground is still defrosting from last night's big freeze.
There's no doubt that this southern couple has had a lot to adapt to when we moved up here five years ago.
But don't worry! We have put together a Winter Guide to NYC. How you, too, can survive until April!
1. Meatball Shop: They do balls right. With multiple locations now in the city, you seriously cannot go wrong with this spot. And have a homemade Ice Cream Sandwich for me!
2. Sons of Essex: Trent and I LOVE this spot. It's not the cheapest restaurant on the block, but why not heat up a cold winter's night with this really cool LES (Lower East Side) spot perfect for a romantic date or a group outing! Below are photos of what we ordered last time we went. (Yes, everything has truffle on it...so what?)
3. Momofuko Milk bar: Enough said. Nothing can cheer someone up more than a sweet treat. And you cannot go wrong with their affectionately called Crack Pie. They even do wedding cakes! I had a bride order her cake from Momofuko and it was out of the world delicious! Also, hurry up! They just opened a new series of Cooking Classes. You get to take home everything you make. Sign me up!
1. MoMath :
Math can be cool! I know a lot of families who have spent their weekends enjoying what the museum has to offer. Check it out for yourself!
2. Ice Skating at Byrant Park:
You still have some time! The rink doesn't close until March 3rd, and if you haven't had a chance to experience Citi Pond at Bryant Park, throw on your scarf, hat and gloves, and head on out there! And the best part - Admission is FREE and Skate Rental is $14. And when you need a break from skating, head over to Celsius! (This once a year structure is only built for the winter months.)
3. Brooklyn Bowl
Feeling Adventurous? Head out to Brooklyn for “One of the most incredible places on earth,” according to Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Bowl integrates a premier performance venue, food by Blue Ribbon, bars which feature local craft brewed beers, and 16 bowling lanes which give guests a unique place to relax, eat, drink and watch a performance.(c/o of Brooklyn Bowl Info)
KEEPING IT INDOORS?
2. Light a candle. We are huge fans of Yankee Candles Spring/Summer collection. Tonight we lit their Sun&Sand tart and in no time our apartment was transformed to a beach vacation.

There you go! These are just a couple of ideas. I could literally do a post each day about the things I would recommend doing in NYC during this cold winter months. (hmmm...you may see some more, keep checking back!)
Happy Monday! Linking up today with the lovely Molly! Check out her blog here.
